I am currently 4.5 months pregnant and it's hard to not be consumed by the motherly instincts growing inside me. Come September I will have a whole other little life to care for, nurture and love. To say I feel a flood of emotions everyday would be an understatement. Just looking at these images brings me to tears. I know babies are born every second of everyday but when you have a tiny life growing inside of you - it feels like a miracle. I am excited, terrified, overjoyed, filled with wonder and love about this new chapter I am about to embark on. I am sure no one else can quite understand like other mothers out there. I already have so much love for this baby I can't even imagine how I will feel once she is born and I am holding her in arms and looking at her sweet, little face. I don't think anything can prepare you for that overwhelming love you will experience. I will say to my baby girl, I am already so honored to be your cocoon, your home, your nest, your mother. I will do the best I can to help you be the best you can you ever be.
To all you mother out there, human, animal, whatever you are...thank you for all the love you bring into the world.
